The Beasts of the Field

In Genesis 3, God compares Satan’s intelligence to that of the Beasts of the Field. Why? Throughout history, we’re told of mythological creatures such as centaurs, satyrs, minotaurs, etc. Many people hear about these mythological creatures and think that they’re just all make-believe. But what if they’re not? What if there is more to these mythological creatures? What if there are mythological creatures in the Bible? What if Satan being called a dragon is more than what it seems?

The Beasts of the Field

Satan Compared to a Beast of the Field

If Satan is an angel and the beasts of the field are just animals, why did God compare his intelligence to an animal?

1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made.

Genesis 3:1a

Mythological Creatures in the Bible

Satan Called a Dragon

If Satan is an angel, why is he never referred to as such? Why is he referred to as a dragon or a serpent (which are beasts of the field)?

Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

Revelation 12:7-9

The beasts of the field aren’t animals, they are supernatural beings created on earth. That’s why they were brought to the man when God saw he was lonely.

18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” 19 Now out of the ground the Lord God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name.

Genesis 2:18-19

Satan isn’t an angel. He is a beast of the field.
